Conisbrough music fest band do charity single for Sheffield Children's Hospitals
Local Indie rock band Mucky Blond have recorded a charity single celebrating Conisbrough Music Fest (CMF).
he inspiration for the song came when Dylan Shaw, lead singer of Mucky Blond, attended Conisbrough Music Fest last year: “I couldn’t believe the sense of local community that had been achieved, the buzz around the place and the overall vibe was unbelievable.” said Dylan.
“I went straight home and started writing the song which we have now recorded, aptly called CMF. I am really pleased that we will be supporting such a worthy local charity as Sheffield Children’s Hospital.”
The video can be viewed on the Conisbrough Music Fest youtube page.
